    Now would that be boiled crawfish or smoked crawfish? I think it would be sorta hard to smoke crawfish... They would crawl out before you could get the door closed!

    SSSHHHWWWINGGGGGGGGG! I love them mud bugs!!! You guys gotta add more to the pot though!!! Gotta have some brats, and cabbage in with the mushrooms, taters, crab legs, shrimp, lemons, beer, corn, and enough spices to make you sweat for a week............aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh!!! What is more pathetic is that the only crawdads(whole) I've had have come from wal-mart(china). This spring looks too busy, but some day......some day I'm gonna order me some authentic American (LA) crawdads and have a big ______ boil.

    Theres good smoked meat, and there is a good seafood/crawdad boil. Everything else is just "food" to get you by till then.

    Man, I'm hungry now.

    You can buy them in Tulsa @ the Nam Hai oriental market-21st & Garnett. they keep live crawfish and blue crabs. I was just by there Saturday. No need to wait another 7 years.

    Oh, also Hebert's specialty meats (71st & Lewis) will take orders, but you have to buy them by the sack.

    You must've not looked closely at my avatar.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    But Hey, how about a rep point? I just found out I'm an "unknown quantity", and I'm not sure I like that.


    Joe's Crabshack..... you poor, poor thing.

    Bust 'em in half, suck the juice from the head (and if you're lucky you'll get one with some roe in it mmmmm) pop the meat out the tail and grab another. Is that how it's done?
